Strachan Carriage HouseGuest Comments
  • "Our three generation family spent a wonderful five days over Thanksgiving at The Strachan Carriage House. We could not have been at a more comfortable, convenient and historic location. Many wonderful meals were prepared in the kitchen – very easy. We walked the beach, main street, and the lighthouse. The third generation cousins will have so many memories of this family reunion."

Even though all of us have been to St. Simons over the years, this is the first time we’ve all been together to create new memories, and we’re so looking forward to coming back to this beautiful house! See you next time!"

  • "We were a bit concerned about a family vacation in an historic landmark, but this is a beautifully livable house.  Cooking was a pleasure in the best equipped kitchen we’ve ever had, and we’ve had 20 years of experience.  It was as if our hostess had anticipated every need!"
